Debut Kentucky novelist, Tracy Coffee Gayle, comes to Carmichael’s this weekend
…but don’t worry, it’s not game day, you silly bull-headed basketball nuts. Whiles sports fans swell with pride (and rivalry rage simultaneously…) as the NCAA spotlight falls on the Bluegrass, another Kentuckian makes her splash in the literary world. Join Tracy Coffee Gayle at Carmichael’s Bookstore tomorrow, Friday, March 30th at 7pm for a reading from her first book.
For a great many years, I was not a fan of amusement park rides – decidedly not amused.  Those industrial machines painted in flashy, neon hues did little to mask my distrust of mechanical failure at a height from which the probability of death was favorable.  In short: too...

Highly-acclaimed writer, Tobias Wolff, featured as the final artist for UofL’s A
Stop thinking about sports. No, really. Wash off the face pant, put on a shirt and listen up! Literature lord Tobias Wolff will share his work tomorrow night, Thursday, March 29th, for free as the final guest for the University of Louisville’s Axton Reading Series.
Nobody cares about college basketball.  And by “nobody” I mean nobody in my house or associated with said house (the Venerable and Most Illustrious House of Day).  Bleeding blue; bleeding red…Yada, yada, yada and bunch of other blithering bumper-sticker blather....

It is sometimes difficult for me – worldly woman that I am – to travel outside of the fair Bluegrass and not endure the occasional taunt, jibe and jab at my Kentucky residence – and, yes, born and bred; I am no transplant.  But they can eat their stereotypical wordplays,...

Penguin Perfect: Sarabande Books presents poets Martha Rhodes and Sarah Gorham a
Winter may now be officially over, but nothing can stop 21c’s famous, flamed-colored, frigid-weather, feathered friends (now THAT was an alliteration! Boo ya!) from flexing their poetry wings. Sarabande Books hosts its monthly Reading Series with poets Martha Rhodes and Sarah Gorham this Monday, March 26th, at 7:30pm.
There are a great many reasons why one should completely ignore “hype”.  First of all, it is this writer’s opinion, that Hype holds a gentle hand with Hysteria (ok, let’s be fair, it’s usually squeezing fingers into purple oblivion).  Hysterics rarely lead...

Get your early spring on with some free poetry at the Louisville Free Public Library! Maureen Morehead and Kathleen Driskell will read from their latest releases tonight, Wednesday, March 14th, at the Main branch starting at 7pm.
Spring has sprung!  And…very early.  While the solstice clock is still settled in Winter, the jet stream has had other plans as of late: the sky is forget-me-not blue, the breeze is a warm breath and my Bradford Pear tree has marshmallowed into a creamy riot of tiny, delicate...
